100 Good Morning Quotes to Help You to Start Your Day Right


Today I’d like to share 101 timeless quotes that will help you to have a good and motivated morning.

Because how you start your day tends to set the tone for the rest of the day.

If you start your day with negativity and in a hurried and stressed state then that’ll likely continue for the rest of the day and impact your work, relationships and overall quality of life that day.

If you on the other hand start your day in a positive way with some uplifting reading or a fun conversation around the breakfast table and then get started with your most important task of your day as soon as you arrive at work then you’re setting a much better tone for your whole day.

So if you need some motivation to get started on the right foot on a dreary or tired morning – or your day just got off to a rocky start and you need some inspiration to turn that around – keep reading.

Inspiring Quotes on the Relationships and Love in Your Life

Few things can so powerfully lift us up and keep motivating us as the love and relationships – both with others and ourselves – in our lives.

“A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they’re not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they’re not so bad.”

We all know people who are so much afraid of pain that they shut themselves up like clams in a shell and, giving out nothing, receive nothing and therefore shrink until life is a mere living death.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

“Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.”
– William James

“I found in my research that the biggest reason people aren’t more self-compassionate is that they are afraid they’ll become self-indulgent. They believe self-criticism is what keeps them in line. Most people have gotten it wrong because our culture says being hard on yourself is the way to be.”
— Kristen Neff

“Loving people live in a loving world. Hostile people live in a hostile world. Same world.”
— Wayne Dyer
